I was reading that a good productive artist should/could/would complete one page of a Graphic book a day ... and I have been taking a week on some of the newsletter pages (Steep learning curve) .. So today I decided to make a draft cover for the "Sherman Book" .. using page 9 of the 1970 Vietnam cruise book, another excellent design by my favorite artist Manny Angeles. Tried to finish the cover art today I'm getting better and faster, but near the finish, got all involved with how to illustrate the lines to the flags .. I even drew the grommets and brass clips for the flags (OCD?) ,,, the flags are floating until I draw in some authentic line! .. maybe with a half hitch around the the bar under the title
.. I will sleep on it! .. Enjoy!! .. BTW ... with one page a day I'll be finished in less than a year!
